Embossing on Epiphany Crafts Vintage Setting

The following is a tutorial I made for a posting on the Paper Studio blog a few days ago.   I love the finish it creates so I'm sharing it here now.
You can emboss on Epiphany Crafts Vintage Settings to give them a gilded antiquity or metallic look. 

Here's how...

Step 3:  Place inked Epiphany Crafts Vintage Setting into Snap Tray and cover the inked surface with embossing powder.  Lightly tap off excess into Snap Tray.  Place Vintage Setting aside and pour remaining embossing powder back into original container.

Step 4: Emboss the Epiphany Crafts Vintage Setting with an Embossing Tool or similar heat gun.  Make sure your Vintage Setting is on a nonflammable hard surface before embossing and let to cool a few minutes following the embossing.

This is really easy to do.  So try a little embossing on your Epiphany Crafts Vintage Settings for a truly stunning effect!
 I'm thinking I've probably lots of crafting items in my stash I could emboss on, I'm going to go digging now.
Happy Embossing! - Misty
